Spicy, savory scones

Posted on Leave a comment

It’s time for another “Curious Caterer” mystery! This time, Goldy Berry is making scones for a Medieval party where something sinister occurs. I decided on creating a savory and spicy scone because lets face it, things between Goldy and Detective Shultz are starting to spice up!


  •  2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1  teaspoon garlic powder
  • 6 tablespoons COLD unsalted butter (cut into tabs)
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2 cups cubed Colby Jack cheese
  • One package spicy pepperoni
  • 1 teaspoon liquid smoke
  • 1 small bunch chives


Mix together all dry ingredients. Then add cold butter and break it into flour mixture with a pastry blender or fork until it forms pea sized pieces of dough.

Add buttermilk and liquid smoke. Stir until a sticky dough is formed.

Add chopped pepperoni, cheese cubes and chives. Add some extra flour to knead into a dough ball.

Place on a non stick baking mat and form a round circle. Score 6-8 slices (like a pizza) before baking. Baste on a little extra buttermilk and bake at 400 for 20- 25 min. I like to dollop a bit of sour cream on top, but you can enjoy as is!
